The Billy Elliot story
Billy Elliot has become a timeless classic – a true heart-warming tale of triumph over adversity.
This powerful, funny and uplifting tale, set in a northern mining town at the height of the unrest during the miners’ strikes, sees a young boy, encouraged by his single father to become a boxer, discover a passion for ballet dancing.
Billy’s pursuit of his dreams sees him having to challenge common perceptions, gender stereotypes and the disapproval of his father in the way he knows best; through dance.
Billy Elliot The Musical is a highly-acclaimed adaptation of the film, written and produced by the very same team alongside songwriter Sir Elton John. Subsequently, it manages to stay true to the original film whilst bringing spectacular choreography right before the very eyes of the audience together with catchy musical numbers.
Like the film, the musical has been a monumental success, winning over 80 prestigious international theatre awards including the highly coveted Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Musical in the West End.
